Jimmy Cricket has recently been over to the Emerald Isle where he had a wonderful visit to what he describes as “one of the nicest theatres in Ireland”.
The An Grianan Theatre in Letterkenny hosted Jimmy and his stand-up comedy show where all seats are a tenner. As this Donegal town is located just across the border from Northern Ireland and the city of Derry, the tickets were not priced at £10 but 10 euros!
Joining Jimmy on stage for the second time in six months was his special guest for the night, Letterkenny-based comedian Andy McGranaghan (both are pictured right).
A great crowd turned up to see Andy, Jimmy and his wife May Marion, who provided some musical interludes during the show.
Some of Jimmy’s relatives were among those present as his second cousins have always lived in Donegal and whenever he visits they try to see him for a catch-up.
After the show Jimmy stayed overnight in the beautiful coastal town of Buncrana, where he had a fabulous stay at the aptly named Harbour Inn located across from the beach and the Donegal coastline.
Jimmy, 71, said: “Hopefully it won’t be too long before I return to this region of Ireland which once more gave me a very warm welcome.”
